Garth Brooks is being sued by a former business partner. The country icon is facing the heat against Lisa Sanderson, reports TMZ, for unpaid salary, bonuses, and and punitive damages. She worked with Garth for over 20 years as a television producer to help jump-start his acting career, and she is claiming that it was Garth himself who stopped him from roles in “Saving Private Ryan,” and “Twister.” She also claims that he killed deals with Disney, Fox, and many others because of the way he acted or because of his demands.
The lawsuit was filed by Marty Singer and Allison Hart. Lisa is asking for $425,000 from Garth, claiming she was lied to about the salary she’d receive if she stuck around.
